St Mary Woolchurch-Haw

"ST. MARY WOOLCHURCH HAW, so named, from a beam that stood anciently in the church-yard for the weighing of wool, stood on the eastern side of Stock's market, which is now occupied by the Lord Mayor's Mansion-house. It was destroyed by the fire of London, and being a small parish, was united by act of parliament to that of St. Mary Woolnoth." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 48 in the above map - is located in Walbrook Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt.
The parish was later united with St Mary Woolnoth 1670.
